Some Mad Genius Made a Dancing Baby Groot Toy and It’s the Cutest Thing Ever
While we were incredibly charmed by all things ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ perhaps nothing charmed us more than that final scene of a baby Groot dancing to the Jackson 5′s “I Want You Back” in his flower pot. It’s one of those moments where you almost immediately think, “I WANT THAT.” Sadly, there are no official plans to make a Dancing Groot, but that didn’t stop Patrick Delahanty who went all DIY and made his own. And, after watching this video, WE WANT THAT.
So, how did Patrick actually do this? We’ll let him explain:
I made this using a “Movin’ & Groovin’” flower I got from eBay, cut off the dumb daisy, covered the stem on felt and twine, sculpted the head from Model Magic, and painted everything with brown and tan paint. He can now dance to Peter Quill’s ‘Awesome Mix’ or my own.
It’s so obvious, we can’t believe no one thought of it first.
Considering Disney loves money and loves to make money off of merchandising, we can’t believe that there are no plans to make this product. Name your price, Disney! Just shut up and take my money!
